It’s an orangutan! For the first time since 1996, one of the critically endangered great apes has been born at the Audubon Zoo, which announced the birth Wednesday.

Baby Menari is being hand-raised. Tyrene Fayard, assistant curator of mammals, says the mother — 20-year-old Feliz  is very attentive, but cannot get the hang of nursing.
